For the productivity addicts among us, there’s nothing more frustrating than finding yourself caught on a stalled subway or idling in rush hour traffic on your way to or from work, sans reading material.
There’s something about reading in the pre-desk hours that gets you in the right headspace for the day ahead, no matter if it’s a novel, memoir, or blog post you’re digging into. Not only that, using your travel time to read is an awesome way to burn through that Goodreads queue. I read more than 100 books last year mostly by making use of idle travel time.
As far as tools of the trade are concerned, of course you know there’s Kindle; but if you want to try out a new app for your reading material, the options below have a lot to offer. Go ahead and judge these e-reading apps by their covers; they won’t disappoint.
